Wayne Kau`i Lincoln
May 11, 1946 – Jan. 23, 2022
ʻE wehi i ka umauma i akea’
Open out the chest that it may be spacious.
Be generous and kind to all.
Wayne was born in Hawaiʻi to parents Herman and Dorothy Lincoln. He was raised in a loving military family on the island of Oʻahu. He attended the Kamehameha Schools-Kapālama Campus before relocating during his senior year to Okinawa, Japan, where he graduated from Kubasaki High School.
Making Maui his home in the early 70’s, he began his career with A & B Commercial Company. While transitioning, his young family was honored with the title of 1971-1972 Hawaii All-American Family and represented the 50th State at the All-American Family Search in Florida. Suitably, this pivotal time led to more than 50 fulfilling years in leadership and mentoring roles encompassing the non-profit sector and building industry in Hawaii and spanning across the global marketplace. As an entrepreneur and visionary, he started No Ka Oi Distributors and later Aliʻi Trophies. Ultimately, Wayneʻs strength of character and integrity made him a driving force at Mid-Pac Lumber, Honsador Lumber and Total Building Products, LLC.
Wayne’s compassion for the greater community on Maui lead to impactful roles at The Maui Contractors Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, The March of Dimes, and The Kiwanis Club of Maui. On Oʻahu he served as the Charter President of the Hawaii Steel Alliance, Inc. and was an active member and Trustee of the Pearl City Elks Lodge #2669.
A gifted Artisan, Wayne specialized in working with exotic woods and designing custom pieces. A spirited competitor, he thoroughly enjoyed a friendly game of golf. At the end of the day, when his work was done, he rarely missed an opportunity to ‘debrief’ at happy hour and karaoke with his friends and colleagues. As such he will be fondly remembered for his musical talent and beautiful, captivating voice.
Wayne will forever live in the hearts of his wife, Guillerma Gail Lincoln and sister, Lani Wagner. His legacy lives on through his daughters, Dawn Mahealani Lincoln Viela (Lee), LeeAnn Nohonani Harders (Karl) and his son, Matthew Kanaʻi Lincoln. Five grandchildren, Mitchell Kauʻi O. Owan (Chandie), Carli Leiana K. Hoʻopiʻi (Koree), Ethan E. H. Hoʻomalu Harders (Kahaʻiola), Nicholas S. Makaneole Harders (Victoria), and Noah K. W. Kalahoʻokahi Harders. ‘The Greats’, Lexie Grace Kauʻilani C. Owan, Rylie Renee Mahealani A. Owan, Kenzie Nicole Leiana T. Owan, Abel H. Kekauhuluehuowaihali K. Hoʻopiʻi, Keʻālaʻipāeaeaokamoku Zelie Rose Harders, Kaliʻuola Hanna Lilia Harders, Lance S. M. Kekaʻaonahiapoapilipili Harders, and Heath Rogers Kahauloliʻiakawaipupuhi Harders.
A Celebration of Life was held to honor Wayne, at the beautiful Kawaihaʻo Church in Honolulu on March 12, 2022.
